Love the way you are experimenting! The tea bag page came out really good!

Re: My Grunge Journal

There are some who are doing paintings solely on used, dried tea bags. So tiny yet so amazing.

Re: My Grunge Journal

This is yesterday's Grunge entry. another view of the guitar player and no, he wasn't playing at Logan's Roadhouse, that's just something that was sitting on my desk and seemed appropriate so I clued it on.

Re: My Grunge Journal

Love all the new ones not seen yet. FYI I did try the cheap white craft acrylic and it was so thin I could still see the text, so painted several coats...will try sketching or painting over that.

Re: My Grunge Journal

Kay, if you look closely you can see the text under my drawings, it adds a bit of mystery and other than posting here I don't plan to show this one anyway.

Today I was listening to Verdi's Requium (sp) so I looked him up and tried a drawing of him. I also folded some new tortillons and was thinking of some of the artists we've lost over in the wde... Sharron was one, she showed how to make these and I think of her every time I roll one of them. Connie was another.... her determination was so inspiring. Guess maybe I'd better go over there and post this, or do a link...

Love this guy!
Yes, those two artists were very special and I know we all miss them. Plus Deano. As far as I know he never missed a WDE!

Re: My Grunge Journal

Helen, great job on these pages. I like the drawings over the text. I haven't checked in the WDE in so long. Sad to hear the group lost a few people.

Re: My Grunge Journal

Thanks Joan...
Three more... after doing Verdi I decided to try doing two of my favorite artists.


Can you tell who they are?
Finally, last week was my good friend Joan's funeral; I wasn't able to go so during the time of the funeral I did this drawing of her....

She was a beautiful woman, inside and out, one of my forever friends and she will be missed.

Re: My Grunge Journal

Helen, I like Lautrec better than Van Gogh but both, plus the sketch of your friend, are nice sketches.
Regards,
Greg
